Are you participating in The Splendid Sampler quilt along? This week marks the half way point.
I was going along zippety zip with these blocks. I was having such fun keeping up and trying all of the different techniques and styles presented by the different designers. Then, that end of school madness set it, and then I went to summer music camp with my daughter, my son got married and my other son and his wife had a baby. Whew, things have been crazy busy here this summer.
Luckily, I read Pat's article on The Splendid Way to Do Things. I know that there is no such thing as being "behind" on this sew along. I've been saving all the patterns and they are ready and waiting for me when I'm to continue.
Even though I don't have the first 50 blocks made yet - or anywhere close, I'm celebrating!! This has been such a fun adventure and I've met a lot of new quilters over in The Splendid Sampler facebook group and through the #thesplendidsampler hashtag on instagram.
In celebration, I'm offering a digital copy of my Atomic Pinwheels quilt pattern. To enter, leave a comment on this post. Let me know how you are doing - are you participating in the sew along? is it not your thing? are you being picky about which blocks you make? do you eagerly await the next pattern every Sunday and Thursday? do you have a favorite block that you have made? I'll announce a winner on Aug 10.
Hop over to The Splendid Sampler page for a list of other Splendid Sampler Designers who are celebrating this week. Some of them may be offering a free pattern or give away so be sure to visit all of the designers.
